Baked beans with mince pork

Sokehah Cheah | 1:14 AM | |


I would label this as a 'saviour' dish as it'll certainly save your day when you have unexpected guests who happened to 'overstay' for dinner.  Open a can of baked beans, toss in some mince meat and if meat is unavailable, eggs will do just fine. 

I remember that many years ago, I cooked this for my then school-going children.  I was busy that day, just managed to boil a lotus root pork ribs soup and squeezed in this dish before I rushed off to fetch them back from school.  Although they have always enjoyed this dish, they expected more food to greet them on the table after a tiring day at school.  A mere soup and a baked beans dish just won't do. I vividly remember my boy asking me whether we were in financial difficulty and needed to stinge on food ..... and this poor mama has been ridiculed ever since, whenever  'Baked beans with mince pork' is mentioned.





This dish is readily available at economy rice stalls and very often scramble eggs is a good alternative to meat.

  10. This is the one dish my whole family loves. However I diced the onions instead of slicing them. It gives the dish a uniform look.

    Not a bad idea to dice up the onions. Thanks for sharing!
